On Wednesday August 23, 2023 during a joint Police operation in the Northern Division, at the Dierre-Fort and Ti Rocher intersection in Castries, Officers had reasonable grounds to stop a white Toyota SUV, which was occupied by two male individuals.

The behaviour of the two occupants aroused the suspicion of the Police Officers, which prompted a search of the motor vehicle.

During the conduct of the search, the Officers discovered and confiscated one (1) 9mm Taurus pistol with a magazine containing eleven (11) rounds of Ammunition.

Neither of the occupants produced a valid Firearm User Licence, which would have given either of them the legal authority to carry a Pistol and Ammunition.

In addition to the discovery of the Firearm and Ammunition, the Officers also confiscated a quantity of green plant-like material, which is suspected to be Cannabis.

The occupants of the vehicle were arrested for the offences of Possession of Firearm without a Valid Licence, Possession of Ammunition and Possession of Controlled Drugs.

The occupants have been identified as twenty-three (23) year old Terrance Chandler  and eighteen (18) year old Terry Valcin, both residents of Ti-Rocher, Castries.

The pair have been charged for offences of Possession of Firearm without a Valid Licence, Possession of Ammunition and Possession of Controlled Drugs.

They are scheduled to be taken before a Magistrate’s Court for purpose of bail.

  1. Laws should be changed. 10 years for unlicensed firearm. 1 year for each round of ammo. No exceptions. These two gangstas should do minimum 19 years.

  2. The Magestrates at the Courts in St.Lucia does impose petty Fines on these persons arrested .That’s why persons carry illegal Guns on their persons everyday

  3. No doubt they’l go through the revolving door at Magistrate’s Court, and soon be back on the Road to do only what they know. Don’t tell me there is nothing on the Island for young men to occupy themselves in a day job. Is stealing, drug dealing and killing each other the new norm in St Lucia? Why is St. Lucia so cursed? Is it because they’ve turned their back on God? all better be very careful, the worse is yet to come – in Natural disasters stc.

  4. The last comment, are you not a Lucian no family there I suppose not a good thing to say because what’s happening in the country is affecting all of us one way or another becareful what you wish for?

  5. Put all jokes aside the illegal guns are being fostering by the security forces here in St. Lucia and the big wing lawyers. Remember money talks bullshit walks.
